Various liquids, gasses, and even solids are often stored in bulk containers. Common containers include drums, IBC tanks, and gas bottles. In order to effectively protect the contents from cold, reduce viscosity, or increase efficiency for easy dispensing, the contents must be kept warm. If the temperatures of the contents fall below desired levels, the contents could be ruined or unable to dispense at all. Many of these containers are in hazardous areas where ATEX certification is a requirement for the type of heaters permitted for use.
